HOT: Honeycomb Hideout, Dennis St, Footscray (entry via unnamed laneway)

Honeycomb Hideout is a new Footscray bar that opened this week thanks to the owners of local pasta restaurant Fox in the Corn. The minuscule bar is the result of a hole cut out of Fox in the Corn‘s original prep kitchen (which has never been used) and a small courtyard where the staff used […]

HOT: Piccolina Gelateria, 802 Glenferrie Rd, Hawthorn

Piccolina Gelateria brings real Italian gelato to Hawthorn with a whole bank of glistening pozzetti tubs to tempt Glenferrie Road shoppers as our summer heat stretches into autumn.

The restaurant opened today with a soft launch truncated menu. The official launch is not till Thursday when they wheel out their […]

HOT: Miinot Gelato, 71 Melville Rd, Pascoe Vale South

Melbourne heat wave = daily gelati tasting. And while Miinot Gelato is hidden away in Pascoe Vale South it’s well worth the trip. If you’re local, lucky you! The tiny shop is on a main road but not really close to anything else – no cafes or shops near it. Nevertheless, on my arrival there […]
